1. Nick Saban (Alabama)
Salary: $7.2 Million
No surprises here. Considering Saban has won as many National Championships (4) as the other 9 coaches combined, it’s only fitting he ranks first on this list. But the $7.2 million he receives directly from the University of Alabama doesn’t tell the whole story. In addition to his enormous salary, Saban had the mortgage on his $3.1 million house paid off by University of Alabama boosters. But wait, that’s not all! Those same generous Alabama fans also pay the yearly property taxes on his home. With all those expenses already taken care of, it’s a mystery what Saban actually does with his paycheck!
